cdrom drive spins down while extracting audio

Post by beakerboy » Thu May 10, 2007 12:40 pm

When I insert a CD into my CDROM drive I can hear it spinning at high RPM. By the time max gets to ripping the audio of the last track, the disk seems to stop spinning. Then it will spin up and down in fast succession. The progress meter still continues to move, albeit very slowly, and the time remaining start to increase.

If I wait a minute or two after putting the disc in before starting the ripping process, the spin up/down problem will happen even earlier in the disc. It seems like the OS is only allowing the disc to spin at full speed for a certain time.

Has anyone else seen this problem or know where to look for diagnostics? I'm running OSX 10.4.9 on a Macbook.
